Huntington’s disease research news. In plain language. Written by scientists. For the global HD community.
Jeff Carroll is a scientist studying HD as a post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Marcy MacDonald at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. His post-doctoral work is focused on understanding the links between metabolism and CAG-expansion in the huntingtin gene. He completed his PhD with Michael Hayden at UBC in Vancouver with a focus on using mouse models of HD to understand caspase biology. As well as conducting research, Jeff is a member of an HD family and himself carries the mutation which causes the disease.
